Today during the PS4 Lab livestream on Nico Nico Deep Down producer Kazunori Sugiura shared more information on the upcoming exclusive for Sony’s new console, and we finally had time to translate what was told, filtering out what we already knew.
Unfortunately the first piece of info will probably disappoint many ladies among us, and those that enjoy playing female characters:
Sugiura-san also mentioned that he’s unable to provide any information on the release window of the game or on the date when the beta will begin for the moment.
I can already see quite a few people getting very, very angry at the combination between a male hero and a sexy Cortana-like housekeeping AI. Brace for impact.
As an added bonus, we managed to re-record the six gameplay videos that were showcased during the livestream with audio and better framerates (finding a recording program that works well with Nico Nico seems to be a quite difficult task). You can enjoy them below, nicely bundled in a single clip.
Update: the story originally stated in error that “only male playable character models will be available.” Producer Kazunori Sugiura clarified that he meant that the main hero will be male, but he wasn’t necessarily talking about playable characters.
